Very comfy place
"After a visit to the lighthouse, this was a very convenient place to stay for a couple of days. Thanks for the suggestion to eat at MyChosen Cafe - great food! We got too busy with other sightseeing in Victoria to use the boats but thanks for making them available. And between dogs, ducks, swans, sheep, deer, squirrels and racoons, we added to the "wildlife" that we saw on this trip! Thanks for a very comfy place to stay. "

Friendly atmosphere
"Overnight stays should not be permitted - too much to see and enjoy! Essential to have the dog's names displayed so that they can be greeted appropriately. Outstanding location and friendly atmosphere plus interesting details makes your home a true "destination." "

Absolutely terrific
"It's not often that one gets to come back to a very special place with people who've come to feel like family. And to think it comes complete with Bassett Hounds! We've had a great time re-visiting some old haunts like Butchart and Point-no-Point and visiting new places that will stay in our memories. But will stay longest in our hearts is the warm kindness and hospitality you've shown. Thanks for making us feel like part of your family and for all your help and advice. It's made our trip again absolutely terrific. "

Great vacation
"This is the first vacation of my adult life anf the first time I`ve been to the island since I was 5 or 6. It was great to be this close to downtown, but I think that this place alone would have made for a great vacation. Between the hot tub, the totally adorable Basset Hounds and the private dock I think I had more fun and felt more relaxed out here. "

Wonderful BandB
"Your B&B is wonderful and we`ve really enjoyed staying here. It was no doubt one of the many things that made our trip to BC memorable. We`re sorry that we didn`t get more of an opportunity to spend time getting to know you , as it would seem from other guests comments`that you both make this place as special as the view or coziness of your home.Thank you and hopefully we will be able to return some day.

Most memorable
"It has been a true pleasure to be the first guests in the newly expanded quarters of Birds of a Feather. Relaxing does not come easily to us, both with demanding jobs, but in a matter of 24 hours we have evolved in to a couple of lethargic slugs. The view, the ambience, the hospitality have melded to make our stay most memorable. "
